This Sunday sees America’s premier sporting event – the Super Bowl – where two teams face off in Indianapolis to be crowned NFL Champions.
But forget about the New England Patriots or the New York Giants, the best part about the Superbowl is the commercials.
Every year the big hitters of the online video world screen their latest commercials on Super Bowl Sunday, in the hope that their video can go viral and be the success of 2012.
Last year, we had the Volkswagen and their Darth Vader advert, and in 2010 Old Spice reigned supreme and went viral. This year, the likes of Audi, Toyota, Honda, Hyundai, Pepsi and Volkswagen have all released their latest ads to air this weekend. And with Super Bowl ad space not coming cheap (it’s estimated to cost $3.5 million per 30 seconds), there’s all to play for.
Here are Greedy Media’s top 5 Superbowl commercials for 2012:
Volkswagen – The Dog Strikes Back
Volkswagen – The Bark Side
